Request for Proposal Model LanguageHighlightsBenefits for MembersKey FeaturesIncludes two paths from which to choose
Path 1: Compliance documentation verification of completeness/accuracy is factored into a proposers scoresAdvantage: can score proposers based on thoroughness of compliance documentation
Path 2: Compliance documentation verification is a condition of award for the highest-scored proposerAdvantage: proposers do not have to gather compliance documentation unless they are the highest-scored proposersRequest for Proposal Model LanguageHighlightsPath 1 may be ideal for RFPs involving only a few products (e.g. police uniform)Path 2 may be better for RFPs involving a lot of products (e.g. catalog-style contract for T-shirts, sweatshirts)4Path 1 compliance documents:
Government entity or Consortium reviews compliance documents (factory location and wage information) for completeness and accuracy; AND/OR looks up the manufacturers participation level in the Responsible Manufacturer Program (RMP)
Completeness and accuracy of the documents (or level of RMP participation) are then incorporated into a set calculation to determine score
For compliance document review: only those proposers that are at least 50% compliant with this procedural requirement will be considered for further evaluation [Goal is to increase minimum threshold over time]Request for Proposal Model LanguageHighlightsKey FeaturesPath 1 compliance percentage calculation:Item weight (I) equals the dollar value of item divided by the total dollar value of contractItem scores 75 percent credit for accurate location (L) plus 25 percent credit for accurate wage details (W) (if wage info is not requested, items scores 100 percent for accurate location)(L plus W) times I equals weighted compliance pointsSum of all weighted compliance points equals total percent compliancePercent compliance beyond threshold can be applied via a ratio to the RFP evaluative points available for sweatfree compliance
